    How many Transformers talk in rhyme? The only two I know of are Blaster and Wheelie. Anybody else?

    Grimlock doesn't do it naturally, but in the original movie when he was with wheelie, he did a little bit.

    Yeah, I can remember one quote from the movie he said, "Me Grimlock say we on our way", If you would like I can pop the movie in and find out what all he says?

    He was a poet (usually writing haiku), but he didn't speak in rhyme IIRC.

    As far as I recall there weren't many at all. Blaster and that annoying Wheelie we rememeber all too easy. Grimlock's rhymes were more one-time in reference to that annoying kiddy.

    Sky-Byte used Haikus,
    They typically don't rhyme,
    Not that it's a rule.

    Sky-Byte, the greatest
    shark around. The greatest shark
    in town. That is him.

    I wish I could write
    Some Japanese poetry.
    Haiku are so cool.

    Haikus are not hard
    'cause they don't have to make sense
    Refridgerator

    But seriously
    Sky-byte speaking in haiku
    Should have been in Rid.

    Do minicons count?
    They didn't use many words
    Does beep rhyme with bloop?

    Basically those two. And honestly, they'll do.

    Though in normality,
    They refer to the seasons,
    and how they will change.

    And as for Sky-byte
    While not exculsively so,
    he spoke some haikus.

    Like blossoms in spring

    We remember it.

    No one should ever
    Compare Blaster to Wheelie
    One is cool, one lame.

    It's funny, haiku
    Began with a larger form
    Called a Renga Chain.

    Actually, a traditional haiku contains a kigu, a word that indicates the season. Changing seasons are not a key to traditional haiku. That theme, however, is not terribly rare due to the duality and/or contradiction that often appear(s) as well.

    Not sure how often Jazz spoke in ryhme but one particular time comes to mind in the episode where Sparkplug was kidnapped and brainwashed he spoke " Into the ocean,Lets be daring, Last one in is a rusty herring". And I also recall Rumble saying something atleast once I believe it was "if on Decepticon turf you happen to tumble, look out robot here comes Rumble". Like I said not sure if these were one time occasions and currently can't recall anymore.
